3 way stopcock standard a valve with three ports used in medical procedures.  It controls fluid flow between ports by rotating a handle. 

 

Description

3-way stopcock Standard features:

Three Ports: A regular 3-way stopcock has three openings, allowing fluids to move straight, turn right, or stop completely.

Rotating Handle: The handle rotates fully but stops every 90°. This lets you carefully select openings for fluid flow or shutoff.

Luer Lock or Luer Slip Connections: Standard connections ensure easy, secure attachment of the stopcock to syringes, tubes, or equipment.

Transparent Body: It’s made from clear polycarbonate, allowing you to see fluid flow and detect air bubbles easily.

Leak-proof Design: 3-way stopcock stops leaks, keeps fluids in place, ensures safety, and maintains normal fluid control.

Biocompatible Materials: Made from materials that won’t harm the body or react with fluids or medications they contact.

Pressure Rating: It means that the 3-way stopcock is built to handle different kind of pressure, making it utilise for a wide range of tasks.

Sterilization Compatibility: Thoroughly clean them with steam or special gas to ensure they’re completely free of germs and dirt.

Usage:

  • Medication Administration: 3-way stopcock lets doctors give several meds or fluids via one IV.
  • Blood Sampling: Providers can take blood samples without stopping the IV drip.
  • Hemodynamic Monitoring: 3-way stopcock for arterial lines: measure BP & take blood samples.
  • Central Venous Pressure (CVP) Monitoring: It helps calculate the pressure in a large vein, crucial for managing fluids in critical patients.
  • Fluid Management: Helps control the movement of dialysis fluid in and out during hemodialysis.
  • Contrast Injection: Helps inject contrast dye in a controlled way during CT scans or MRIs.
  • Fluid Distribution: Helps distribute fluids precisely in experiments.
  • Sample Collection: Allows you to collect samples from a reaction without stopping the experiment.

 

Faqs

Regular 3-way stopcocks are for situations where the pressure is low, like when you're getting fluids through an IV. High-pressure stopcocks are built tougher to handle situations where the pressure is higher, like when doctors need to monitor your blood pressure closely or during certain types of imaging tests.
You can use regular 3-way stopcocks for giving any type of fluid, whether it's medication or non-medication fluids, in medical situations.
Fluids can be observed in a 3-way stopcock, used to control flow between different ports in medical settings.
